This could be an interesting one. For a change, we have Mark Webber on pole position rather than the default Vettel situation, although for all Red Bull's diffuser complaints, they still have a tight grip on the front of the grid. Lewis Hamilton is starting tenth, and he'll want to race forward through the field, although whether he's got the car to do it is another question.

Paul di Resta and Kamui Kobayashi are somewhat out of position and could stir up something interesting, whilst Jenson Button has the edge on his teammate so far - will it last?

The race will begin at 1pm GMT+1, with the Factbyte Factbox providing all the build up you'll need an hour beforehand.

One to Watch

Heikki Kovalainen managed to squeeze his Lotus car through to the second session of qualifying, and whilst he couldn't make any more progress over 17th place, that is still good form. What can he achieve today and can he, once again, show up teammate Trulli?
